Art-Gazing, Wonder-Making Inspiration at the Hudgens

Adjacent to Duluth's Infinite Energy Center lies the Hudgens Center - an art-lover's gem (and a Community Foundation fundholder). It's billed as "A community-funded hub of discovery where art and learning converge". It's a place where the community can view art of all kinds, experience traveling exhibits, take their children to play, enjoy the serenity of the Al Weeks Sculpture Gardens and more.


It's the perfect place to learn through creating - whatever your age. For children, summer at the Hudgens is full of fun and creativity. Kids can sign up for week-long camps or weekly classes such as acrylic painting, basic drawing and cartooning, and parent/child pottery on the wheel.


Adults have their choice of classes year-round as well. Classes include painting and drawing, basic photography, expressive sculpture, introduction to pottery and wheel throwing and more.


Some of the art students have been coming for years. They enjoy the community they've found at the Hudgens, whether through making pottery or helping heal through Healing Arts, the free monthly program for cancer patients and their caregivers.


So, if you haven't been yet or have friends who haven't, it's time to visit the Hudgens Center and discover art in Gwinnett!
